Are you able to use the laptop at all or does it flash a black box then power off?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we use it. When the box flashes it interrupts what we are doing but does not power off the laptop

Since you cannot read the box, it would be easiest if I connected to your computer to see the issue then fix it. If you are okay with that, please accept the offer that I am sending you then I will provide you with the steps so I can connect. It can take 1-2 minutes for the offer to appear.
